Based on an incredible true story, the critically-acclaimed drama Concussion will be available from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on Digital HD and on Blu-ray Steelbook, Blu-ray, DVD and next-generation 4K Ultra HD on 6th June 2016.

Two-time Academy Award® nominee Will Smith (Best Actor: Ali, 2001; The Pursuit of Happyness, 2006) stars as Dr. Bennet Omalu, a Nigerian immigrant and forensic neuropathologist who diagnoses a new brain disease and its link to concussion-related injuries in football players. Concussion also stars Academy Award nominee Alec Baldwin (Best Supporting Actor, The Cooler, 2003), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beyond the Lights), Arliss Howard (Full Metal Jacket), Paul Reiser (Whiplash), Luke Wilson (The Royal Tenenbaums), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (The Bourne Identity), with David Morse (The Green Mile) and Academy Award nominee Albert Brooks (Best Supporting Actor, Broadcast News, 1987).

Concussion is to be released from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on 4K Ultra HD, joining the studio's May 23rd catalogue films including The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Salt, Hancock, Chappie, Pineapple Express, and The Smurfs 2. 4K Ultra HD features four times the resolution of high definition, high dynamic range (HDR)--which produces brilliant highlights, vibrant colours and greater contrast on compatible displays -- and Dolby Atmos audio, remixed specifically for the home cinema environment, delivering captivating sound that places and moves audio anywhere in the room, including overhead.

Bonus content on the Concussion Blu-ray, DVD and Digital formats include the featurette "Inside the True Story", where viewers meet the real people who inspired the film. Blu-ray and Digital exclusive content includes nine deleted scenes and the featurette "Crafting Concussion", where cast and filmmakers share a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film.

Will Smith stars as American immigrant Dr. Bennet Omalu in this dramatic thriller based on an incredible David vs. Goliath story. Concussion tells the story of the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE, a football-related brain trauma, and fought for the truth to be known. However, Dr. Omalu's emotional quest puts him at dangerous odds with one of the most powerful institutions in the world. With captivating performances by Alec Baldwin and Academy Award ® nominee Albert Brooks (1987 Best Supporting Actor, Broadcast News).

Written and Directed by Peter Landesman, based on the article by Jeanne Marie Laskas, Concussion is produced by Ridley Scott, Giannina Facio-Scott, David Wolthoff, Larry Shuman and Elizabeth Cantillon, with Michael Schaefer, David Crockett, Ben Waisbren, Bruce Berman and Greg Basser serving as executive producers.
